Hello ConfigMgr community,
This week, we have received a new model workstation, HP EliteDesk G1 800 SFF. So, as per usual, I do my job of testing out my current production image on it to see what drivers would need to be included in the driver package.
First thing I notice, I do not get an IP in Windows PE. Fine.
I download the NIC drivers off the support web page of HP, and after fiddling with a test Boot image I have, I finaly manage to isolate the SYS/CAT/INF/DLL files I need to import in my drivers.
The driver itself is: Intel (R) Eternet Connnction I217-LM.
I then add this specific driver in the Windows PE tab of my Boot Image (x64). Press a few next next finish, which then launches the process of recompiling my boot image, injecting the drivers and redistributing the image on my 50 or so Distribution Point.
Here's where my problem lies. As soon as the distribution starts, my individual DPs go from Install Pending to Installed. I then start receiving alerts from my SCOM agent stating that my Windows Deployment Service isn't running.
Sure enough, I manually log into a few of my servers, and the service is stopped.
If I try manually starting the service: Windows could not start the Windows Deployment Services Server service on Local Computer. Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly.
And here's the kicker: if I roll back the change, and remove the driver I just injected, WDSServer service is able to restart without any issue.
I also tried the whole process with the latest driver downloaded from Intel.com website, again, same issue.
Looking over Google/Bing for this specific problem doesn't yield anything very useful to me.
I was wondering if anyone ever had this issue, and if so, how did you resolve it?
